Plutarch and Dio Cassius have positioned the classical Talaura in Cappadocia. But that city is best known for being the site of a mountain fortress of Pontus where Mithridates VI hid his most precious treasure, which was found by Lucullus. At that time, Talaura is located very close to the borders of Little Armenia : the Romans reported that, in his flight, Mithridates gained with great difficulty Comana (located near the current Tokat) by the mountain, and, pursued by Marcus Pompey and a Roman body, he passed in Little Armenia around Talauro.
The center of the modern city of Turhal, in the region of the Black Sea, Turkey, is actually occupied by a large fortress on a rocky peak which is called Talaura. Yet the ancient name of this city is rather accepted as Gaziura.
